Book Review: Happinest by Judy Holland

Happinest, Finding Fulfillment When Your Kids Leave Home by Judy Holland

Book Review

I am honored that I was asked to endorse the book, Happinest by Judy Holland. The photo is of me holding my pre-released copy of the book – so much fun!

I enjoyed reading the manuscript, months ago, and look forward to diving back into the book, which is available for purchase now. It also has been rated one of the 6 new Self-Help Books for Better Living by AARP.

Your Empty Nest Coach, Christine, holds Judy Holland's book: Happinest, Finding Fulfillment When Your Kids Leave Home

HappiNest: Finding Fulfillment After Your Kids Leave Home is a valuable resource for empty nesters. Judy Holland has expertly curated interviews, quotes, research studies, and statistics to comfort, inspire and encourage those of us who are heading into or who are in the empty nest. ~Christine Maziarz, Your Empty Nest Coach

No matter where you fall in the empty nest journey, there is something of value in this book for you. Judy covers immense topics with well-researched information within each one:

  • Finding Yourself
  • Empty Nest Relationships
  • Guiding Your Fledglings
  • Words of Wisdom

Additional Information:

Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield

# of Pages: 242

This is my first book review using a rating system. I’ve landed on “happy chicks” as my rating guide. A book may receive up to five happy chicks from me. Happy chicks, for me, means both happy mothers and happy children (of any age). I’m pleased to give this a five out of five happy chicks rating.
